A unique set of paintings with a vital and urgent prophetic message for Britain

As a renowned UK artist, Julie Ann Scott had been selling her oil paintings successfully around the world for several decades when she felt that God was challenging her to complete a set of nine paintings based around some of the miraculous events of World War 2.

She told HEART: “In January 2017 God revealed to me that something big thing was coming to Britain, a kind of storm. He wanted me to paint an exhibition of the WW2 miracles resulting from King George VI calling the nation to prayer seven times.”

God wants to remind us that he saved us once during the dark days of WW2 and wants to do it again as we approach another dark period”

Julie Ann felt that this divine commission was confirmed when, in 2020, she saw an article on the national days of prayer by Pastor John of Strengthen the Faithful, whose short Dunkirk film has previously featured in this paper.

As Julie Ann began to paint, there seemed to be no sign of an imminent storm, but God confirmed the warning again and again through numerous miraculous events and new connections. Now she has seen the paintings gain their own momentum and they are now even being exhibited at a women’s prayer conference in Windsor Castle.

This set of paintings has a vital and urgent prophetic message for our nation right now”, she says. “God wants to remind us that he saved us once during the dark days of WW2 and wants to do it again as we approach another dark period. He is warning us of a coming storm and that we must turn back to him and his Word.

His hand of protection is about to leave us and repentance is needed for leaving his Word and his law.”


The paintings are at Moggerhanger Park, Bedfordshire, until 31 May, then will be exhibited to the general public at St Mary’s Church Woollnoth in London (Sir John Newton’s original church) from 5-19 June, immediately after being displayed at a private conference for Christian women leaders in Windsor Castle. Thereafter at the Father’s House Church, Shaftesbury on 30 June and Living Word Network (Fareham) on 7 July.

A coffee table book containing the WW2 paintings and a deeper explanation of what God said to Julie Ann Scott when she painted each piece will be available from Amazon soon.

A message of hope for a nation at war

Each one of the nine paintings correlates with the armour of God from Ephesians 6 and has its own unique message, which Julie Ann Scott explains here

PAINTING ONE – ‘St Paul’s Cathedral’

St Paul's CathedralStanding against the enemy

(Bible references: 1 Peter 4:17, Hebrews 12:26-29, Jeremiah 6:16-19, 1 Thessalonians 5:1-9)

Despite specific orders from Hitler to target this symbol of Christendom, it survived. St Paul’s Cathedral in London stood out as a beacon of hope when so much of the city around it was dust and ruin.

We must remember our Christian roots and the values we once upheld

Today, I believe a storm is coming towards the Church and all of us—a great shaking. We must look back and remember the ancient paths we once walked – our Christian roots and the values we once upheld.

With humble and repentant hearts, we must look again to the One who delivered us from the greatest evil and stand firm for him and all that he has revealed in his Word, whether we struggle with it or not. Judgement does indeed begin with the house of God but the gates of hell will not prevail against the Church’s advancement.

In this painting, the orange cross of Jesus is where the hope lies.


D DayThe belt of truth

(Bible references: Matthew 10:38-39, Ephesians 6:10-14, Revelation 12:11-12, 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12, Isaiah 59:14 -15, Luke 9:23-26, Romans 1:18-20)

Before the Allies’ invasion in June 1944, King George VI initiated a day of prayer for all military personnel. Throughout the invasion, the soldiers gave all of themselves.

We defeat evil and our enemies by not loving our life or anything in it

They knew that the hour had come when they could no longer love their own lives. We defeat evil and our enemies by not loving our life or anything in it. Jesus must be our only Lord and God.

In this painting, the orange blood of the soldiers in the sea is where the hope lies.

PAINTING THREE – ‘Churchill & Roosevelt’

Churchill and RooseveltThe breastplate of righteousness

(Bible references: Ephesians 6:14, Isaiah 51:7-8, Revelation 3:14-21, Jeremiah 9:23-24, Genesis 7:1, Philippians 3:7-11)

Two leaders united IN righteousness and FOR righteousness made a powerful alliance.

Britain had to go to war and not make peace with evil

Eventually, America’s leader had to listen to Churchill who knew Britain had to go to war and not make peace with evil. When they stood together with a common cause, there was a far greater chance of winning the war. The identity of their enemy and the measures they had to take became clear as they united.

In this painting, the orange on the united chairs standing together represents where the hope lies.

PAINTING FOUR – ‘Soldier and Child’

Soldier and ChildThe feet shod with the preparation of the Gospel of peace

(Bible references: Ephesians 6:15, Isaiah 52:5-7, Mathew 25:31-46, 1 Corinthians 1:18-21, Romans 1:16-17, Acts 10:42-43)

For this girl, her own wartime miracle was simply an act of kindness through which she was fed and loved.

Faith alone is dead if we do not take care of those around us by acts of kindness and care

Believers carry a great gift of peace and good news. We must be ready to give away the gift of the Gospel and the gift of hope, love and kindness, that we personally have already received.

We are saved by grace through faith, but faith alone is dead if we do not take care of those around us by acts of kindness and care. The greatest kindness we can give away is the Gospel of Jesus Christ. To do this is to have the kind of love for the lost sheep that Jesus has.

The orange feeding spoon represents where the hope lies.


The BlitzThe shield of faith

(Bible references: Ephesians 6:16, Hebrews 11, John 3:18, Daniel 6:23, 1 Corinthians 2:4-5, Philippians 3:7-9)

The firefighters had faith that no matter how great and numerous the fires, they must keep going to extinguish them. The faith of the small groups along with the persistence of prayer warriors meeting together have such powers against the fires of hell and the lies of Satan. No matter how bad things get in the future of Britain, small groups of intercessors ‘standing in the gap’ will lessen the damage, reduce destruction and save lives. As it says in James 5, “the prayers of the righteous man achieve much”.

The orange in the helmets of the firefighters unified in faith represents where the hope lies.

PAINTING SIX – ‘Battle of Britain’

Battle of BritainThe helmet of salvation

(Bible references: Ephesians 2:1 and 6:7, Acts 4:12, Colossians 2:15, Psalm 37:39-40, 2 Corinthians 7:10, Isaiah 60:18, Revelation 12:10)

Around 1,000 young men with an average age of 20 halted the mighty Luftwaffe as Hitler prepared for invasion.

On 11 August 1940, at the height of the Battle of Britain, a national day of prayer was held. Truly the Lord can save using many or few. The Spitfire pilots talked of victory against all odds.

Young men fought in the air to create a kind of wall of salvation for Britain. We must build this wall again, fighting in the heavenly places through total obedience to God and trusting only in his salvation as our protection. Today is the day of salvation.

The orange on the soaring Spitfires represents where the hope lies.


KIng George VIThe sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God

(Bible references: Ephesians 6:17, Mathew 24:33-35, 1 Corinthians 1:25-31, Psalm 149:6-9, Revelation 1:16, Hebrews 4:12-13, Daniel 6:5)

During World War 2, every time Britain faced an existential crisis with no human help available, George VI initiated a national day of prayer. Seven national calls to prayer took place and each time we were delivered as a nation.

The King of England knew the best and only weapon against evil was believing in the absolute truth of the Word of God that says only he can save us! The Bible is the book that shows us the power of God fully. We must build our house on this rock, a sure and solid foundation and not on the shifting sands of any present generation.

The orange double-edged sword represents where the hope lies.


Pray in the Spirit on all occasions

(Bible references: 1 Samuel 12:20-24, Ephesians 6:8, Nehemiah 1:4-7, Matthew 6:7-14, Philippians 4:6-8)

In May 1940, defeat by Germany seemed inevitable because most of our army was trapped at Dunkirk.

The King held for a national day of prayer to plead for divine intervention. Two days later, the English Channel became like a millpond, enabling tiny boats to rescue 335,000 men. A similar Channel calm hadn’t been seen for a generation.

The earnest call to national prayer saved many souls and allowed us to regroup and continue the fight. The little boats were like those prayers reaching out across the sea with passionate, heartfelt requests to save our land.

We need to know the times in which we live and be alert to the same urgent need today.

The small orange boats represent where the hope lies.


VictoryThe Spitfire stickers

(Bible references: Ephesians 6:10-18, 2 Corinthians 10:3-5, Psalm 118)

The pilots placed victory stickers on their planes depicting the swastika being blown apart.

There will be victory again; however, it will come not by human endeavour but through divine intervention in response to sincere nationwide repentance and prayer.

Our Lord Jesus has won the battle against the works of Satan. Again, we must have him as our front guard.

The orange V for victory represents where the hope lies.
